The Business of Fashion (BOF) is one of my favorite online sources of information pertaining to the fashion industry out there. It makes an effort to present the fashion world in a more serious and business like tone – and unlike WWD it’s free!
Recently BOF has been nominated for a Webby Award (which is basically the Grammys of online). It is in the running with online business blogs such as Mashable and Business Insider. To motivate followers to vote Imran Amed (Founder and Editor in Chief of BOF) wrote an interesting article explaining how fashion is not just models, parties and fun, it’s a business that a lot of people do not understand or try to understand.
Check out the article here and if you like what you see vote for BOF – it only takes a few minutes!
mixing street wear looks with luxury fashion brands “play on words”.
we love brian lichtenberg.
it’s fashion week in milan, and yesterday we had the awesome opportunity to work backstage jo no fui.
the brand was started by a previous architect, Alessia Giacobino, from Rimini, Italy. You can see the reflection of the architecture in her pieces, with the structured tops and metal details. the collection had lots of fur, and warm comfy tones. view yesterday’s runway here.
Check out our behind the scenes pictures!
currently on the runway in NYC is prabal gurung’s rtw’13 collection. He launched his first collection at NY fashion week in 2009 and his philosophy is modern luxury and glamour. Although he is now based in NY he was born in Singapore and raised in Nepal.
Although seemingly very Westernized a closer look reveals that his collections have a slightly more Eastern construction. This particular line is quite beautiful with amazing details – he is definitely a designer to keep an eye on.

I really love the cambridge satchels (the originals made by the cambridge satchel company) they are simple, easy, an accessible price and pretty cool. Here in Milan they sell them at Excelsior – a fantastic department store if you haven’t checked it out yet. I got two for pretty much the price of one – gotta love sales.
